Removing and installing the lifters (and everything else that has to be removed to get to them) and the camshaft was a hundred times easier than getting the timing cover back on!

Basically the oil pump teeth is extremely difficult and frustrating to line up with crankshaft sprocket thingies. Tried aligning it, moving the crankshaft left and right, to get it in for 2 hours before i gave up.

There's gotta be a trick to it! This can't be the only way to get it in! :s
